Choose a teammate and grab a canoe or you can go solo in a kayak or hop on a paddle board!


This race began as an argument whether it was possible to paddle around Latham Island in Under 20 minutes. Many have tried, a few have come close but to date no one in memory has broken the 20 minute barrier. Give it your best shot in earn a place in the Yellowknife Folklore as the paddle that finally settled the age long debate.
